Please note: The dogs in ODH's Final Refuge care are not adoptable due to medical reasons and all are in permanent homes. Your sponsorship supports the veterinary expenses for these dogs - and we thank you!
Banjo is a sweet, sassy, and loving English Toy Spaniel who came to us when his owner passed. She had nine dogs and three of them were deemed unadoptable so Old Dog Haven stepped in to help. The average English Toy life span is 10-12 years, so Banjo is above average at 13 years and 9 months.
Banjo’s nickname is “Jo-Jo the Jedi” because of his Yoda-like ears. He also looks like a little bit like Gizmo. He loves to sit on laps and get his ears scratched, sniffing around in the yard, and a good nap. He also enjoys snuggling with one of our other six spaniels.
Banjo loves anyone and everyone that he meets and we joke that he is the Walmart greeter.
Banjo came to us completely shaved as he’d been covered in mats. He also has mitral valve disease, which is now being managed, as well as surgery to remove all his teeth. In the first few months with us, this poor little guy battled a middle ear infection that caused “old dog” vestibular disease–a result of having lived with those horrible teeth for so long prior to coming into ODH care. We are happy to report that Banjo has made a full recovery and he’s loving his new life!
